Reseting Weblogic Admin Password

March 29, 2010

As usual i forgot the password that i used in the weblogic install .. or something else happened. So after a bit of googling and trial and error these are the steps that did the trick for me for Weblogic 11g:

  1. Shutdown weblogic server
  2. rm $MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/$DOMAIN/servers/AdminServer/security/boot.properties
  3. create new boot.properties at that place and add the username=NEWUSERNAME  and password=NEWPASS lines
  4. cd $MW_HOME/user_projects/$DOMAIN/security
  5. java -cp $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/server/lib/weblogic.jar:$CLASSPATH weblogic.security.utils.AdminAccount NEWUSERNAME NEWPASS .
    (be extra carefule to the last dot)
  6. mv $MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/$DOMAIN/servers/AdminServer/data/ldap $MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/$DOMAIN/servers/AdminServer/data/ldap.old
  7. restart Weblogic

Hope i don’t need it again.
